Ways to Connect

Look for our new, weekly "Inside MTPR" post about what’s going on at Montana Public Radio. Whether it’s a special program you might enjoy, a feature by or about one of our dedicated staff, or just a peek behind the curtain at MTPR, we want to share these stories with you.

This week, I’m going to focus on the efforts to secure federal funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB).

We're honored to be awarded radio website of the year for www.mtpr.org, and non-commercial radio program of the year for Threshold Podcast from the Montana Broadcasters Association.

MTPR's Rodeo Radio Theatre was also named runner up for non-commercial radio program of the year.

Congratulations to all of this year's E.B. Craney award winners, and thank you to all MTPR supporters who help make public radio possible!

Election Day is always an exciting and unpredictable day for any news organization. A “special” election can be even more so. Now throw in a dramatic event involving the front-running candidate on the eve of the election, and we’re at a new level. Our Montana Public Radio news team rolled with the punches, kept digging and found the latest information to best inform everyone before the polls closed on Election Day.

Montana Public Radio will be off the air temporarily for listeners in the north Flathead tuning in on 90.1 FM. The outage will begin on May 10 at 11:00 p.m. and last until 5:00 a.m. on May 11. We apologize for the inconvenience

You can tune in to our live stream during the outage (or any time) at mtpr.org, or via the iTunes, TuneIn or Stitcher apps.

MTPR's live stream was recently updated. If you can't see the play button or can't stream from MTPR.org, try clearing your browser cache.

Attention kids of all ages: Bill Harley returns to Missoula on Mother’s Day, May 14 at 2:00 p.m. to perform your favorite children's songs and stories.

As a singer and storyteller, Harley is a favorite of fans of MTPR's "Pea Green Boat." Entertainment Weekly called him "the Mark Twain of contemporary children's music."
